Arch Capital - Chart Of The Day

|Includes: Arch Capital Group Ltd. (ACGL)

The Chart of the Day belongs to Arch Capital (NASDAQ:ACGL). I found the insurance and financial services stock by using Barchart to sort today's All Time High list first for the most frequent number of new highs in the last month, then again for technical buy signals of 80% or more. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 1/18 the stock gained 3.67%.

The Arch Capital Group is engaged in a range of insurance and financial service activities through subsidiaries comprising Arch Insurance Services and the ownership of intermediaries, underwriting agencies, service providers and insurance companies.
